Mediumwave DXing: Radio setup offers “cheap thrills”

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Rich Stahl (WR3V), who shares his frugal but effective mediumwave DXing setup:

My MWBC directional reception on the cheap (see photo above):

Tecsun PL-310ET $40.85
Tecsun AN200 loop $12.95
Walmart Lazy susan $7.95
Cardboard box -0-

Total $61.75

Who says its an expensive hobby?

Indeed! That’s a very basic, yet very effective setup, Bill. Thanks for reminding us that this doesn’t have to be an expensive venture!

Muzuho SX-3 Preselector on eBay

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Rich Stahl (WR3V), who writes:

FYI, a Muzuho SX-3 preselector just showed up on eBay.

Rare as hens teeth, and said to be excellent units. Looks to be in nice condition.

Click here to view on eBay.

I’m not that familiar wit the Muzuho SX-3, but it does appear to be a quality unit and has great reviews. Preselectors can be incredibly useful to radio enthusiasts who live in the presence of blowtorch signals or who have sensitive receivers that can easily overload. Thanks for the tip, Rich!
